Modern Heat Treat Expands Production Capability with AFC Holcroft Equipment
March 18, 2019
In support of its continued growth, Modern Heat Treat, a commercial heat treating operation located in Richland Hills, Texas (USA), has added several additional UBQ (Universal Batch Quench) furnaces and companion equipment to its installed base. Several new equipment orders were placed with AFC-Holcroft months apart throughout the year in 2018, adding similar equipment to that already in operation in their facility.
Modern Heat Treat has benefitted from the modular, flexible UBQ design with the ability to add new equipment to their facility incrementally, creating full production cells that utilize existing controls. Individual furnaces can be added to the operation independently, and the same can be idled then restarted easily as needed for maintenance service, changes in process or production.
“These large capacity UBQ furnaces provide Modern Heat Treat with a distinct advantage in the market, since the equipment is scalable to meet their need for flexibility,” says Tracy Dougherty, vice president of sales at AFC-Holcroft. “AFC-Holcroft is proud to be a part of the continued expansion and growth of Modern Heat Treat.”
